Flashback: Turkeys in Disguise

Last year, when I posted my Turkeys in Disguise product, my students had not yet completed their work. As I prepare to use this in the classroom, I wanted to finally post the work of last year's group!



My Turkeys in Disguise  resource is for intermediate students. I loved all of the Turkeys in Disguise that were out there, but the activities weren't challenging enough to justify their use in a fifth grade classroom. Since we were working on inferring, I decided to come up with my own activity where students disguise their  turkey, but they have to give hints about the disguise so that other students can guess what they are. We did a gallery walk as students put their hints on their desks and made guesses about each one. Then we did a second walk where their "undercover identity" was revealed. My students were engaged and really recognized the connection between this activity and what we had been learning. It was awesome! Here's some of their creations, as well as the bulletin board that I put up that was a big hit in our school!





 










If you're wishing that you had known about this BEFORE Thanksgiving because you would've loved to use it in the classroom, you're in luck! I actually have one of these for Christmas too! You can find it here:
